Default You know you're spoiled when...

You get a loaner (base model A4) and you miss Q5 and everything about it...

I brought in our Q5 Tuesday and we won't get it back until Friday (possibly next Monday) and I'm going nutz! I miss it and everything it does.

I can't complain to others because they wouldn't understand. It's not like I'm driving a Chev Cruze for a week - but geez, I really can't believe how much I miss the Q5.

I just needed to whine a bit... Thanks for reading.

For others thinking about adding/not adding certain options:
- B&O is worth it: I miss the clarity of the system. Audi Concert just isn't the same...
- Navi: I miss having the control near the armrest, the additional menus/color screen that's in the driver's dash and the smoothness of selecting items in the menus. I noticed that scrolling through the regular non-navi menu is choppy. I think it's because of the Nvidia chip with the Navi system.

I miss a lot more, but those are the two options that people seem to question all the time.

May I ask why you have to leave the Q5 for that long?

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEAN! I dropped of my A5 at the dealership on September 1st. I got a 2010 A4 as a loaner. I just got my A5 back on the 13th. I almost hugged and kissed my car.

Interesting that you say that as I am about to experience the same thing next week. 5 days without the Q5. Sigh.

I asked the service counter whether my loaner is going to start with an "S" or an "R".

Couple of issues:

1. Rough starts - Faulty injectors (3.2 engine): Replacing #1, 2 and 6.
2. Issues with Parking Assist (would fail - no camera or the screen just wouldn't show up): Replacing the MMI cable from the camera (they sent a TAC to Audi).
3. Re-balanced the wheels (had a shake).
4. Weird noise (sounds like the fuel pump is priming or dumping) once the Q5 is off. I don't think this is an actual issue since I heard the same thing from the loaner A4 on the first day with it.
5. Keyless doesn't always open the trunk/unlock doors - need to use the keyfob. I don't think they'll find this one or be able to fix it.

All small stuff - just had to wait for the parts and they thought it easier for me to keep the loaner until they could fix it.

Soo..... I CAN'T WAIT FOR TOMORROW NIGHT!!!! WOOT WOOT!!

LMAO!!! It's going to be hard no to do that.

The only good part about having the loaner - we don't fight because we both don't feel like driving it....

You're hilarious! I wish S5 would have been nice!!! or the R8!! Not so sure I would have missed the Q5 as much.... ;P

I'm sorry that you'll be loosing yours for that amount of time. It really sucks. It's like the wait to get it all over again plus add some withdrawal symptoms....

1. Miss the sound of the engine and the response you get from it
2. Miss the gadgets
3. Miss the height and the smoothness of the ride
4. Miss .... a whole lot!

What's yours going in for? Feel free to vent in this forum during your week.

No venting necessary. No problems so far after 5 months, so i feel lucky there.

I felt compelled to get the Stasis ECU tune + exhaust to see what that 2.0T could really do. The ECU gets a trip to W.Virginia and that's how long it takes.

I meant venting about the loaner. I have no regrets with the Q5. It's been great! I just really miss it... I'm hoping to get an e-mail very soon saying it's ready.

Please post your results - I'm curious to see them.
